Guillen sounds off on passion, forgetful fans
Sunday, May 29, 2011
TORONTO (AP) -- White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen doesn't want anyone to question his passion for winning and lashed out at Chicago fans for being forgetful.
Guillen was still steamed about Saturday's 14-inning defeat to the Blue Jays and fired back at his critics before Sunday's series finale, defending himself and his coaching staff against those calling for their jobs.
The manager said no one in the White Sox locker room has more passion for the game than he does and that he'd be "lying to myself" if he tried not to care so much about wins and losses.
He also decried Chicago fans' short memories, saying that "when they're drunk" they urinate on the display outside U.S. Cellular Field that honors the 2005 World Series champions.
The White Sox are 14-12 in May, but had lost five of nine entering Sunday's game. They went 10-18 in April.
